It has become common practice to treat illnesses once they arise. It is imperative for our society to begin taking preventative measures towards good health. By following these simple guidelines you may be able to prevent disease from ever developing. Eat fresh, organic when possible, fruits and veggies as close to the state you buy them in. Purchase meat and poultry that are grass fed, antibiotic free, and as fresh as possible. Eat nuts and seeds, preferably raw and unpasteurized. Always eat fish that is wild caught and not farm raised. Consume organic dairy in order to avoid added hormones that are detrimental to your health. Use only organic seasonings in order to avoid concentrated pesticides. Consume oils that contain healthy fats such as olive oil, coconut oil, and coconut butter.
